I watched it a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Though I don't want to reduce the entire documentary to one of those evil agribusiness dcoumentaries--it kind of is.
I was also particularly happy when I heard that Obama was pushing for safer standards in the food industry..... and then slightly annoyed when I read this article in the WSJ documenting the reaction of "farmers" (aka :large industrial food companies that spend millions lobbying congress ) :
Food-Safety Bill Spurs Backlash
I was particularly perturbed by this line in the article:
" livestock and grain farmers don't want the Food and Drug Administration inspecting farms."
So the FDA can't even inspect where our food comes from....?
The spread of bacteria like E-Coli and Salmonella start in the farms. Regulation should be at all levels of production and as a consumer, I think it's a necessity for consumers to be as informed as possible on where our food is coming from.
Am I the only one that finds this slightly ridiculous...?
